We had potato soup tonight. This is a big, hearty meal that's listed on the Weight Watchers menu list and is very weight friendly. You can see the recipe at the link above.
PawPaw changes the recipe a little.
4 lbs red potatoes, cut into small chunks
4 cups fat-free chicken broth
4 oz tasso, cut into small pieces
4 oz fat-free condensed milk
2 oz fat-free half&half
4 oz shredded carrots
1/2 purple onion, chopped
Wash potatoes and cut them into small pieces. Put the potatoes, onion, carrots, and tasso in a soup pot and boil them in the chicken broth. You might need to add a little water, but it will cook off. Cook the potatoes until they become "mushy". Turn off heat and add condensed milk and half&half. Let it sit about five minutes while you set the table.
Serve with saltine crackers and maybe a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.
I'm still amazed that someone makes fat-free half & half. This is a very good potato chowder and although the original recipe says to make it in a slow cooker, you can cook it on the stove in just about an hour.
